Can't send or receive e-mails from "client" network computers

I have a small peer-to-peer network of three computers, and use MS
Outlook 2000 SP-3 ( as my e-mail program. All computers are
XP (SP2).

I've recently had to reinstall my setup following a system glitch on
the host machine. Everything is fine, except for one thing. I can
neither send nor receive e-mails from the two client machines.

I can access the central address books, Personal Folders etc. without
any problem; just can't actually send or receive via the client

If I try to send or receive from the clients, after a few moments
searching I get "The POP3 / SMTP server name you specified cannot be
found. Please check the name and try again".

Both the POP3 and the SMTP server names are correct.

(I should say that on a couple of occasions from one of the clients, a
self-addressed test message has somehow got out. However, they both
bounced straight back to that machine with the following comment:

"Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Subject:        xxx
Sent:   28/09/2006 13:36

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

'' on 28/09/2006 13:36
No transport provider was available for delivery to this recipient.")


>From the host machine, everything works fine, and networkwise,
everything appears OK. I have full internet access from all machines,
together with full file/folder/printer access across all three

I'm using a proxy server (the same on all machines) - because my local
server has been running slow - but that was the case before
reinstallation of XP on the host machine and has never been a problem.

I've sort of exhausted my own diagnostic abilities! If anyone has any
solutions or suggestions as to why this e-mailing problem from my two
client machines might be happening, I'd be very grateful to hear.
Thanks in anticipation -

Thanks for coming back.

I've had a good look at all the articles you referenced, but none of
them address my problem. Bottom line is, I have no difficulty at all
sending or receiving emails through my host machine.

It's only on the two client machines that I get the responses described

BTW, it's probably worth mentioning that I can ping my ISP from both
client machines with no problem! Just can't pull down or send emails
from them...

Cheers -

Rules in Web Client / Exchange 2003

Specifically messages are not getting forwarded to an alternate email addresses specified in the rule. Sending a messge directly to the alternate email form a Web Client works all the time.

Multiple Stores and HQ Client
We have 12 stores all together that need to synchronize with HQ Server, this works fine if we alternate each of them to update once an hour, one store 5 minutes after the hour, next store 10 minutes after the hour and so on. I know we can also synchronize each of them for every five minutes or whatever interval throughout the hour. The first situation does not synchronize often enough because we have to release credit holds and things of that nature; the second solution bogs down all the servers and makes doing other store stock checks and what not next to near impossible. Is there a...

Outlook Client does not Automatically Authenticate everytime
Several users are not automatically authenticated as a CRM users when accessing CRM through the Outlook Client. They are required to login the first time they access CRM in a day and then randomly through the day. We do not have a problem with the web client. I have put our CRM url on their Sites lists for Internet, Intranet and Trusted Sites sections. I have also set each section to "Automatically logon with current user". This is very annoy for some of our users. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Does anyone know how to fix this, is there a setting in CRM or Ou...

Outlook CRM Client vs. Web CRM Client
What's the advantages of installing and using the Outlook CRM Client vs. using Outlook+Web CRM? There are two Outlook clients-- the Desktop and Laptop. The Desktop client is online only, and the only advantage in using this (in my opinion) is that you can consolidate more of your user's tasks to one location. In essence, the functionality is the same as the web client except that you have the "Track in CRM" option for your emails. The Laptop client supports offline mode and uses the MSDE to manage a local store for changes that will sync with the CRM server the next...

Public folder client rights
Hello, I searched in the help and on the internet but can not find a document describing how client rights on public folders are combined. When I use Outlook and look at the client rights on a public folder I see that there are rights assigned to a user 'Default' and 'Anonymous' how are these combined with the rights directly given to the user? What if the user sits in a Distribution Security group and we give the rights to this group, what is the effect of 'Default' and 'Annonymous' From what I could test I see that if rights are given di...

Why does e-mail from my exchange server go to junk e-mail on other clients?
Hello, I have an exchange 2003 SP2 server. It has the correct entries for reverse DNS. It passes everything including SPF for DNS report. It is not an open relay server. If I send an e-mail from it though, it will go into the junk e-mail folder on a client running Outlook 2003 SP2. My e-mail address/domain e-mail is not in their blocked senders. Any suggestions/tips? Thanks Actions, Junk Email, Junk Email Options, Safe Senders, and tick both bottom boxes. You should be able to deploy that to your LAN quite easily. If need be, search for the reg entry, export...

installing outlook 2003 and retaining outlook express as email client
I am planning to install Office 2003, and will remove my office 97 before doing so. I recall that the typical installation for office 97 installs outlook and I had to do a custom install to avoid installing outlook 97 so as to easily keep my outlook express working as the email client. For the installation of office 2003 I think it would be convenient to install Outlook at the same time but do not want to use it at this time - but might want to later on. Will my mail settings and email automatically move to outlook? I don't want them to, and prefer to keep outlook express 6 as my de...

Outlook Client CRM 3, Fails Login
One user of our 15 Outlook clients fails to connect to CRM.

It is the Outlook laptop client. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling (after deleting the SQL data) but this didn't fix it. Any ideas? Take a look at this manually to verify it was set. It may have added the site to one of the zones but the zone could still be configured to prompt for username and password. To check if this is the ca...

Hi Is there a way to lockdown the settings on the Synchronize tab (under the CRM | Options menu) so users cannot change them? In particular the options which specify what entities get synchonized from CRM to Outlook. TJ Hi, Unfortunately I don't think you can do this - at least not unless you can do some programming that can do it. We are also hoping that this area will be improved, beacuse the way it works is just rubbish. It's just too cumbersome to modify/add filters from an admin point of view and it's not something the user should be able to mess with. I know that C...

CRM Laptop Client Connection Issue
Recently we registered ASP.Net2 on IIS in order to install a custom ASP.Net2 application on a CRM machine... Afterwards all sorts of problems occured of which we couldn't connect to CRM anymore. So we figured out that it could be an ASPNet version issue because we found that the main Web Site and sub sites like Microsoft CRM 3.0 now were using ASP.Net v2, so we changed these from properties, and we changed the master Web Site from the Properties > Virtual Directory Configuration to point to the Framework 1.4 rather than 2.0. Now, we managed to get CRM back to work and we are a...

Troublesome Outlook clients across VPN
We have 7 office locations around the work. Four of those are connected with 10MB dedicated links, and the remaining three are connected with IPSEC VPN's, ranging between 512K and 2MB. These offices have a low number of users (max 15, or even as much as 5). Nothing is filtered on the VPN's. All ports are allowed. Access to the Intranet website works. At the central site we have a single Exchang2003 with about 500 mailboxes for the entire company. Using Outlook2003 in cached mode at the 10MB offices works fine. It's the offices that are connected with VPN that have problems. ...

How to AUTOMATICALLY reconnect clients on Server after disconnecti
I use MFC Visual C++ 4.2. I have developed a server-client app. Only about 10 clients connected to the Server. Recently, in a week the server has been error 2-3 times.

After it error, an application restarting will make it normal. At that time, I need to re-connect all previously connected clients. Is it possible to be done on the server side only?
